Busking Seattle – 29 October 2023

Busking Seattle – Ballard Farmers Market  –  29 October 2023

Two solo guitar/singer acts this day.  Rubin I had actually seen on an earlier date, but just as he as finishing his set and dashing off to his waiting ride.  He channels the youthful Bob Zimmerman pretty well.  Evergreen, with a fuller voice that suggested some formal training, was into Paul Simon’s “Kathy’s Song” when I came upon him.  He kept returning here and there to repeat the same verses in what I’d call a fragmented way, and I thought to myself, “Oh no, a one-song set” (nice turn of trick reffing One-Trick Pony, whose stream of consciousness ends up at Blair Brown (https://parkergambino.com/?p=1851).  Yes, I’ll always digress to strain shoulder self-back-patting!  But he (like me) snapped out of it and moved on to other stuff, to my relief and enjoyment.
